A 21-year-old woman robbed an 18-month-old baby. According to a report by CBS New York, Desire Santiago stole the baby’s earrings while working at a daycare in Bronx, N.Y.
A surveillance camera caught Santiago as she picked up the sleeping baby and put the girl on her lap. When a co-worker left the room, Santiago snatched the gold and diamond earrings from the baby’s ears. Santiago cradled the baby once her co-worker returned.
When the child’s mother picked her up from daycare, she noticed that her earrings were missing. The gold and diamond earrings cost $100 and were a gift from the baby’s grandfather.
The child’s mother alerted authorities and Santiago was fired from her job and arrested. She has been charged with grand larceny and possession of stolen property.
